placeowl.com

Another quick, simple place holder image service

This site was created mainly out of curiosity. I wanted to see if I could figure it out, learn some new web technology and finally complete a project. Exercise the web development brain muscles so to speak.

Usage is as simple as:
http://placeowl.com/{width}

			// Example square image:
			http://placeowl.com/400
		

Alternate {height} dimension for a rectancular image. The first number is used for the {width}.

			// Width and height:
			http://placeowl.com/400/300
		

Add a string {name} to select a specific image.

			// Example image 'one':
			http://placeowl.com/600/one
		

Add the character {g} to request a grayscale image.

			// All together now:
			http://placeowl.com/600/five/400/g
